Your Daily Public Service Announcement

 

 

You have not lived until you step outside in your brand new fancy for work sweater…

…and a giant sorrel sneezes all over it.

Did I do thaaaaat?!?!

 

 

(and because it wouldn’t be MY life if it were “only” that… you REALLY haven’t lived until you realize that the POINT BLANK alfafa/mucus attack is also all over your pants and has soaked through the beautiful first-time-you-ever-wore-it sweater to your undershirt.  You’re welcome)

(and you REALLY REALLY haven’t lived until you run in the house shrieking and your husband assumes it’s the 5-year old and hollers at him to be quiet.  But you might NOT live if you are said husband and you fall out of your chair laughing at the equine accessories dripping off your wife’s new outfit.  At least wait until she quits screaming.)

Oh yuck!! And tell your hubby that he better not laugh at your equine incidents or you'll be totally rolling on the floor and blogging about his - with photgraphic proof!

i am so sorry.. I so rarely get new clothese, cause the little princesses in our house suck all the clothes budget right out of the bank, I lvoe a new outfit and this so would have made me cry.

and the laughing husband....his future would be limited

TIFFANY said...

Hahahaha! At our house, it would've been the dog. I've had to change several times because a fresh from swimming in the pond yellow lab wags his tail into my pants. :)

Brandi said...

Eeeeeeeew!

Kmama said...

Yuck!! Especially the part about alfalfa bits.

Buckeroomama said...

Eww, double ewww! That said, my husband would probably have the same reaction as yours... and if truth be told, I probably would have the same reaction if it had happened to him. Heh.

Aunt Crazy said...

Uncle Bubba would have laughed at me too, but he's mean, he laughed at me when I had a broken foot, TWICE within months of each other.

Mr. Daddy...don't make me come up there...be NICE to Rachel...she does your laundry dude

Amy said...

Not gonna lie.... that made me gag a little at the thought of that.... thank you for not taking a picture of yourself, for my sake. The moment Charlie started laughing I would have jumped on top of him and rubbed the goo all over him. I'm nice like that. LOL

Furry Bottoms said...

Gagggggg! Sorry that had to happen! (*stifling a giggle*)

I do want to say that the picture is so awesome-- you can see the whiskers around the horse's mouth. I love fine details like that!

Pam Bowers said...

Awww...but the trouble making equine is so adorable and innocent looking.

Allenspark Lodge said...

Now, that's just snot funny.

Tina said...

Wow! This is sad to me because I am wearing a new sweater today. I hate that this happened to you. ;)

Jennie said...

Thanks for the smile :) But really... ewww!

Bethany said...

Blech! Sorry about your new sweater.

Foursons said...

Oh boy, that would have really upset me. I so rarely get new clothes- especially work clothes- and if they had gotten ruined like that it wouldn't have been pretty. I hope it washes clean!

As far as Mr. D- your time will come when retribution will be on your side.

Saimi said...

HA! Boy can I relate!! I wasn't wearing a fancy new sweater but I was wearing a WHITE shirt while rubbing my mares face. Little did I know she was drooling and slobbering all over me while enjoying her rub down!

To say the least my shirt wasn't white anymore!

stephanie said...

oh gross! gotta love farm life! I had a heifer in high school who was fond of sticking her smooshy tongue down into my boots {wayyy down} or shirt if it was low cut enough. yuck!

Every farm-girl knows: "No outfit is truly complete without a little horse snot!"

Jenny said...

LOL! Josie manages to get green or brown on me every time i groom her. The more dirty i get the cleaner she is. Sounds like you had so much that a Tide Stick would be futile.

GunDiva said...

Wait 'til his quad sneezes on him - oil, exhaust, various fluids that don't easily wash out.

And where are the pics of the horse boogers?

He & Me + 3 said...

oh no, that is not good...yuck

Stacy said...

Well, I've definitely been the recipient of a horse sneeze, but not on good clothes. You don't get too close to them when you have on good clothes. Murphy's Law and all... ;)

Dyann said...

:-D
